sheriff's office brings us up- to-date. >> the problem was a delay in the search t. happened at 10:00 but one of the -- it happened at 10:00 but one of the subjects self-rescued and crawled his way up to the farmhouse and called 911 there is about an hour delay. the boat is pretty much right on the shoreline. not that far out. 50 yards or something like that. and, and so that was how the two made it to shore. one made it to shore and suffering from hypothermia and the other was able to make it up here to the farmhouse. >> reporter: so, two people with life vests are going to survive. they are hospitalized and the search continues for the other two missing. the coast guard has been involved all day and will resume the search as well as members of the state parks association and the county sheriff's office. >> all right, don, thank you very much. it is one of the hottest days of the year and there is more to come. thousands in the bay area got outside to take advantage of the nice weather. we are told cooling centers are opening in the hottest parts of

air day for our monday, especially away from the bay in the eastern portion ever the bay area and into the santa clara valley where we have the trap close to the surface. the hottest day of this miniheat wave still to come. we will pinpoint that coming up. >> thank you. a new poll shows that californians are reluctant to abolish the death penalty. proposition 34 would replace capitol punishment with life in prison without parole. the u.s., los angeles times poll 38% of voters favor getting rid of it while 51% want to keep it. however, that gap narrows when voters find out that prop 34 requires convicted killers to work in prison and give their earnings to victim's families. we talked to supporters and opponents of the measure. >> right now, death row inmates sit in private cells, watching tv, talking to their lawyers, prop thor putting an end to that and puts -- prop 34 putting an end to that and puts
them to work. >> reporter: and it sentences them to life in prison without the possibility of parole and every person convicted of murder to work in prison and pay restitution to the victim's families. representatives from both sides spoke on cbs 5 eyewitness news this morning. >> i think when i read the cases of the people who are on death row it is stunning in the evil that we are looking at. >> reporter: steve, the district attorney for san moteo. >> there needs to be a difference between people who commit more evil murders than others. >> reporter: statistics show the punishment that is meant for the worst of the worst is not carried out. california has more than 700 inmates on death row, only 13 have been put to death since capitol punishment was written into the constitution in 1972. >> that means california death penalty is a false promise for victims, 99% of the time we have lied to victims when we
said we were going to carry out an execution and dragged them through decades of appeals. >> reporter: costly appeals. some say the state could save $130 million each year with prop 34 but, the factors gumming up the system that puts a stop to all executions since 2006 can be overcome. >> i do believe that if there is the political will, if our leaders will step up and do the right thing and work with everybody on all sides and say let's -- here is what can be done to make things better. then we can have a viable death penalty. >> life without parole say better choice for everyone. >> the proposition is not a statistical heat in the latest polls. with the no on 34 campaign showing a slight lead. in the news room, cbs 5. governor brown signed a bill that could help the
